The winners of this year's National Book Awards were announced on Wednesday night. Local poet, David Ferry of Brookline won this year's award for Poetry with his collection 'Bewilderment: New Poems and Translations'. Louise Erdrich's 'The Round House' won for best novel. This story of racial injustice that takes place on a reservation in North Dakota beat out some stiff competition. Katherine Boo's story of the poverty in the shadow of India's luxury hotels, 'Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity', won the non fiction award.
